Strengthen Your Spiritual Care
through Engaging the Three Gates of Awakening: Body, Speech and Mind

with Susan Shannon

Interfaith and Buddhist Chaplain

Saturday, April 15, 2023
10am – 11:30am PT / 1pm – 2:30pm ET
Online Event
$20 – $50

In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, the Three Gates of Body, Speech, and Mind are our means of expressing the consciousness we interact with the world through. This talk will unpack the conventional and ultimate meaning in a way that will focus on enhancing our ability to serve others in a sustainable way. Intentionally engaging these Three Gates in everything we do, think, and say in the world bolsters us from the pitfalls of spiritual bypass and burnout. In doing so we align our being with that which is greater than us – the energy of the Divine, Creator, our Buddha Nature, etc.

A private zoom link will be emailed by Thursday, Apr 13th end of day. Registration closes Saturday, Apr 15th @ 9am PT. This event will be recorded and a link will be sent to all registrants to view up until 30 days after.

Proceeds go to sustain the ongoing work of the Living/Dying Project.
